Tenant's Wife Claims Succession Rights After Tenant Agrees to Move Out
LVT Number: #26942
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonpayment of rent. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement converting the case to a holdover proceeding and providing for a final judgment in landlord’s favor. Tenant moved out of the apartment in November 2015. Tenant’s wife later claimed that she was entitled to succession rights to the apartment and couldn’t be evicted under the case against tenant. The court ruled for the wife.
